Chin-Neck Treatment with Botox & Fillers

Neck Platysma Bands Treatment

Platysma bands or vertical neckbands are one of the early sings of facial aging in patients. This is especially true in females and many women describe them as ‘neck cords’. Presence of vertical neck lines (platysma bands) that become more prominent with grimacing and facial animation may be present even when the remainder of the face and jawline shows less signs of aging. This physical finding causes significant anxiety to patients.

There are several ways (non surgical and surgical techniques) to treat and correct the neck platysma bands. Dr. John Serrão, of Serrão Rejuvenation Center, carefully examines each patient and determine if they are a candidate for treatment with Botox and would achieve the correction the patient desires, while taking into account his or her life style and desires for post-procedure downtime.  Our patients have found that non-surgical neck platysma band treatment can provide dramatic results.

Dermal FillersNecklace Lines Treatment 

Necklace lines are a typical part of the aging process. Age, heredity and external aging factors (sun exposure, environmental damage) all contribute to the breakdown of collagen and the development of necklace lines and neck wrinkles.

One approach in treating necklace lines and neck wrinkles is dermal fillers. Dermal fillers or facial fillers fill the lines and smooth out the skins surface. The fillers most appropriate for this type treatment would be hyaluronic acid based, such as Juvederm, Restylane, or Belotero.

Dermal filler injections are performed in-office. Topical numbing agents may be used to keep discomfort to a minimum. Results from your filler are apparent right away and typically last for months.

Dr. Serrao may also recommend laser resurfacing or skin tightening treatments if needed before the injection of your fillers. Injection results may be further enhanced by using Botox, Dysport or Xeomin to reduce the appearance of neck bands and slow the progression of necklace lines and neck wrinkles. Anti-aging skincare treatments and medical grade products will help to maintain the results and slow down the aging process by stimulating new collagen formation and slowing the breakdown of your existing collagen bundles.

If you suffer from Necklace Lines and would like to schedule a consultation with Dr. Serrao to see which treatment is best for you please contact our office at 407-896-3772.

Chin Dimples Treatment

Did you know that Botox can actually help minimize the appearance of chin dimples and creases, often referred to as golf ball chin, orange peel chin and cobblestone chin? Just as it helps wrinkles and fine lines in other areas of the face, it has proven to be effective in minimizing the appearance of chin dimpling. Dr. John Serrão is an expert in the use of neuromodulators to smooth out chin dimples and other chin lines and wrinkles.

Botox and Fillers for Chin Dimples

An overactive mentalis muscle usually causes Chin dimpling. The mentalis is a muscle pair on the tip of the chin that helps control the movement of the lower lip. Patients with this kind of dimpling can often experience great improvement in the appearance of the chin with neuromodulator injections.

Through the careful placement of the injections, the mentalis muscle can be calmed and relaxed to smooth out the dimpled area. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are neuromodulators that stop the receipt of nerve impulses to the muscle so that the muscle stops contracting. This causes the area to relax and the dimples to be less apparent. Patients with especially deep chin dimples and creases may experience optimal results from the injection of facial fillers or a combination of fillers and neuromodulators.

Chin Dimples Treatment FAQ's

What causes Chin Dimpling?

A hyperactive mentalis muscle causes Chin dimpling. The contracting of this muscle causes the appearance of dimples or creases that can often be minimized through neuromodulators injections. It is important to note that some chin dimpling can be the result of acne scarring, which is best treated with facial fillers. In some patients, a combination of facial fillers and neuromodulators provides optimal results.

How does Botox Cosmetic help?

Botox stops the nerve impulses that are sent to the muscle, preventing it from contracting. The contracting of the muscle during facial movement is what causes most chin dimpling, so by relaxing the muscle, the area on the surface smooths out and chin dimpling is less visible.

Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation

A Safe and Effective Alternative to Chin Implants

Non-Surgical Chin AugmentationMany women want to improve the appearance of their lower face and chin because they have a chin that is poorly defined or without any projection.  The aging process and genetics are all factors that can affect the appearance of your chin.  Good chin structure can bring balance and definition to other facial features thus improving the overall appearance of your face and jawline.  If you are interested in improving the appearance of your chin without surgery, chin augmentation with facial fillers may be the solution you have been looking for.
